The Royal Marines Museum

The regiment now known as the Royal Marines was first formed in 1664, with the term Marines first used in 1672 after the battle of Solebay, the first naval battle of the third Anglo-Dutch War. 
Over the centuries, the marines evolved and developed to deal with the international demands placed on them by exploration, war and the Empire.  
The proud history of the regiment and its place within British history to the present day is explored here using original uniforms, weaponry, life sized models and displays. 
A series of events take place throughout the year and facilities include a gift shop and cafe. 
The Royal Marines Museum is dedicated to the history of the Royal Marines and the men and women who have served with them.
